All states, territories and the Australian Government have collaborated to develop a PFAS National Environmental Management Plan (PFAS NEMP) version 2.0. The final PFAS NEMP 2.0 was agreed by Heads of EPAs in October 2019. The PFAS NEMP 2.0 is now being implemented in the Commonwealth and other jurisdictions. AEA has several in-house specialists with a history in reviewing and auditing sites affected by PFAS. Please contact us for case studies and to find out how we can help you.

Welcome to the AEA team, Kate Sims. Kate has recently joined us (in our Melbourne office) as an experienced environmental scientist with a strong background in the landfill sector. She will support our auditors and complement our strong, in-house landfill team. Kate has already impressed us and we all look forward to introducing you to our clients and working together.
Consultants generally provide the assessment, remediation and other environmental services. The auditor verifies the consultants work to ensure regulations have been met. Auditors review results from soil sampling and analysis, groundwater monitoring events, gases and vapours, remediation action plans, site environmental management plans, planning and development plans, and any other relevant documents at the request of the auditor to assist in the audit outcome. Where an environmental audit is to take place on a project/site the auditor is to be independent from the consultant doing the work. That is, no conflict of interest. The consultant and auditor respectively work together to deliver the best possible outcome for the client, their project, and human health and the environment.
